In the six months since Pakistan suffered the worst flooding in the country’s history we have delivered vital aid to 124,000 people.

At the end of July last year torrential monsoon rains inundated huge swathes of Pakistan, leaving one fifth of the country under water. Almost 2,000 people were killed and more than 18 million were affected by the floods.

Your amazing response has enabled us to deliver aid to 124,000 people. But there is still an enormous amount of work to do and the next phase of our relief efforts will reach another 75,000 people in the coming months.

Despite the challenges, we were able to use the money you so generously donated to deliver shelters, hygiene kits, blankets, food, safe water and health care. And with your support we will continue to help people affected by the floods rebuild their lives.

In the next phase of relief work, we will reach an additional 40,000 people by improving their access to clean water. We will help thousands of families to find work building irrigation canals and schools or provide them with seeds, tools and livestock to replace those that were lost in the floods. And we will work with local communities to help them prepare for future disasters

Please keep the people of Pakistan in your thoughts and your prayers .
